review courtesy of One Book At A Time

It really was all about the cover for this one. But, I'm fan of mythology and the description and the cover lead me to believe it might be about the Furies. Thankfully I was right, but I wasn't overly into this story.

It really was all about the cover for this one. But, I'm fan of mythology and the description and the cover lead me to believe it might be about the Furies. Thankfully I was right, but I wasn't overly into this story.

I always have a hard time when the story starts out slow. I kept waiting for the story to actually start. It seems like we spend a lot of the story building the basis for the furies to come in, and I really just wasn't that interested. While they really are a part of the story from the beginning, it felt like the didn't really try to manipulate people until about half way through. While we had to wait for Emily's situation to fully play itself off, Chase's "crime" had already been done. I expected them to be messing with him more.

I also didn't really like either of the characters. But, I think that's the point. They both have to grow up and learn from their mistakes. Chase was easier for me to read. I don't think he meant to take his prank as far as he did. And he was truly sorry for it before the Furies every came in to make him pay for it. I was sorry he was the one who had to suffer the way he did. Emily seems to be more the focus of the story. I hated that she liked her best friend's boyfriend. And she was so good at justifying it in her mind. I really couldn't believe that she thought that her friends would forgive her. I actually though that the boyfriend "Zack" was worse than these two.

I don't feel like we got a good glimpse of the Furies. They seemed to be punishing trivial crimes when they are much worse things happening in the world. It seemed almost petty. But, then what did I expect from a teen novel. I'm not really sure if I will read the next one

    Okay book.

    I wasn't all that impressed. Story moved slowly. Like the book cover, however.
